It doesn't take a hero to order men into battle. It takes a hero to be one of those men [and women] who goes into battle. ~ Norman Schwarzkopf
It is actually quite fitting, the book I am reading today. Although the soldiers in my book are not American, they are no less noble and courageous. I think that Chapman, the main character, would take issue with my referring to him as noble and courageous. He did what he had to do; there was no thought to being brave or even of being a hero. Like his real life counterparts, he fought to survive and to protect and defend his friends and family.
A short, but very fitting post for today.ReplyDelete

Hope you've a great day today. :)
I am constantly surprised by those brave men and women who are out there fighting to protect our freedom for that fact - they do not see themselves as anything special.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Jaimie and Melody! I wanted to add a photo but I haven't got all that set up yet on the new computer. Soon though!ReplyDelete
CJ - So am I. To many of them, they are just doing what they are supposed to--ordinary men and women in extraordinary circumstances. I think that makes them true heroes.
